Directing SSP's production of Picasso at the Lapin Agile is Steven Walanka, who has directed SSP productions of Tribute, The Lion in Winter, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Days of Wine and Roses and The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. The cast features Luke Daigle as Picasso, Doug Werder as Einstein, SSP member Renae Stone, as well as Lauren Goode, Rob Grabowski, Jaclyn Jensen, Chris Kordys, Steve Malone, Nate Negron and Jeff Taylor.
